Artist Statement
Painting for me is the process by which I seek Truth, and the constant challenge of finding and portraying the Truth – the Balance – in Nature. In finding and portraying the Truth – the Balance – in Nature, my goal is to create artwork that is balanced…that “plays the music”, and the music I hear from each painting is different from all the paintings that preceded it. My creation process begins with a photo I have taken. Moved by the artistic visions it inspires, I select the paper/s, soft pastels in different forms, threads, and other materials I want to include. This combination of materials coming together in one painting is my way to preserve Nature and give life – and permanence – to the memories I’m collecting. I was taught by both Israeli and American artists, each of whom inspired me and contributed to my artistic development, all of whom urged me to always seek and build my own language, my unique artistic signature. Be determined.
